I haven’t said much about it yet, but the time has come to introduce you to my opponent: Nicole Cannizzaro. She’s an out-of-touch extremist whose solution for every problem facing Nevada is the same—more and bigger government.
Minority Leader Aaron Ford and his minions have already launched a missive against me, equating my opposition to funding education through new and increased taxes to being “against education.”
Nothing could be further from the truth.
The reality is that Nicole Cannizzaro and her union-funded allies are the ones standing in the way of meaningful reform for Nevada’s parents and students.
Unlike my inexperienced opponent—who has no meaningful record worth mentioning—I worked hard and cast votes for education reform with substance that rejects the old, failed model and brings market pressures to bear on public schools. Ford and Cannizzaro continue to stand in the way of helping students stuck in failing schools and getting the education that they deserve while denying children an equal opportunity to access academic success. Together with Cannizzaro, Ford stood in the way of bringing institutional and structural reform that anyone paying attention knows the Clark County School District desperately needs.
Faced with the total absence of a record on which to campaign, Ford is desperately seeking a distraction so voters aren’t focused on his inexperienced, anti-parent, anti-student candidate.
As always, you can count on me to speak the truth—and here it is.
I cosponsored legislation to break up the Clark County School District, empowering principals, parents and students to make local decisions and address the unique challenges that face their schools. My opponent for Senate District 6 stands with the teachers’ union and administrators blocking this meaningful and crucial reform.
I supported Opportunity Scholarships, which encourage businesses to become involved in the success of the workforce while they’re still in school. Cannizzaro is launching a pitched defense of a 19th century public school model that has already proven to be totally ineffective.
I supported Education Savings Accounts—a program that will allow students to access better education and expand the options available to hardworking Nevada families. Many experts have called this law the most forward-looking education reform in the country. Cannizzaro will stand with her union buddies to keep kids in failing schools, oftentimes against the wishes of their families.
I supported legislation that enables ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft to operate in Nevada, providing more transportation and job opportunities for Nevadans and reducing DUIs in the state. Cannizzaro is reliable vote for Ford, who is seeking to pass regulations that will force companies like Uber and Lyft to withdraw from Nevada, costing thousands of jobs and easy access to transportation.
I am committed to providing Nevadans with solutions for problems that they face in their every day lives, as evidenced by the laws I passed to fight neighborhood crime, protect seniors and improve the quality of education our students receive. Cannizzaro has no record, no vision and offers no viable solutions to the challenges we face.
Ford, his hyper-partisan minions and special interests will say and do anything to tear me down because they know that the already unpopular Cannizzaro’s numbers will plummet even further when voters are exposed to the truth about what she has in store for Nevadans.
This November, I respectfully ask that you continue to support a positive and proven path forward for Nevada by supporting my campaign for Senate District 6.
Assemblywoman, District 34
